-Yesterday, my overtime was cancelled.
-This morning around 5 AM, I received a call offering overtime for today. Sweet!

Top 5 Saturday – Local Restaurants 4/12/08

In the wake of yesterday’s feast, today’s top 5 will be about Homestead’s best non chain restaurants. As always, this is based on my opinion (which is almost always right).

5. Nasbar Pizza – Located in the strip beside Sonny’s BBQ on US1 by Walmart, this is some of the best pizza anywhere. The cheese is plentiful and the toppings include real sausage and kalamata olives. It’s not cheap, but it’s well worth the extra dough to get their pizza dough!

4. Capri – This Italian joint on Krome Ave south of Downtown is a little more on the fine dining side than the other Homestead selections. It’s also the only selection on this blog that’s in Florida City. The prices are reasonable, the food is very good, and the atmosphere is top quality. You can also regularly see many of Homestead’s elite, top-notch politicians, former mayors, and city councilpersons here. You can also see them at Publix.

3. The White Lion – Discussed on this blog yesterday, this restaurant is tucked away in old Homestead by Homestead Middle just off Campbell Drive. The menu is creatively worded, the service is extremely friendly, and the food is home cooking meets gourmet. They also don’t underfeed you here, so bring your appetite.

2. Mario’s – Cuban food! The location is US1 and NE 11th St. It’s on the old site of Howard Johnson’s Restaurant and the location of many a failed endeavors. Mario found the right formula: good Cuban food, good service, good prices, and a clean atmosphere. It’s also open 24 hours.

1. El Nachito – Tell Frenchie that I sent you when you go. This is some seriously good food, and friendly service, all for the lowest price.
Location is 12795 SW 280th St, Homestead, FL. It’s just down the road from the BX Mart at the Homestead AFB in a shopping strip. They serve the best seafood enchiladas, and the burrito a la verde is my wife’s favorite! Have all the chips and fresh salsa while you wait, it’s on the house. When you are finished, you gotta try the banana burrito or the fried cheesecake.
